It’s referred to as the “next generation refrigerant” but very few people know what it is and how important it is for the environment.
We’re talking about R32, which is starting to be used in the latest, industry-leading air-conditioning systems.
What is refrigerant? It’s the medium that conveys heat as air conditioners work by transferring heat in refrigerant circulating between the indoor and outdoor units.
Since 1987 worldwide regulations have increasingly become stricter as authorities encourage a shift to refrigerants with lower environmental impacts.
What’s so special about R32? It has a global warming potential (GWP) rating that is one-third lower than previous generation refrigerants and an ozone depleting potential (ODP) rating of zero. Its improved efficiency means R32 can reduce electricity consumption as much as 10 per cent.
The transition to R32 is prompted by a range of benefits, both for manufacturers and consumers. These include a lower impact on the environment, energy efficiency, safety and cost-effectiveness.
Sharpe Energy Hub is at the forefront of this exciting change, and can supply and install the latest generation of air-conditioners that use R32 refrigerant.
One of the most popular ranges of ducted air-conditioners is made by Samsung. The obvious efficiency of R32 refrigerant is boosted by Samsung’s use of advanced compressor technology, more powerful air-flow, whisper-quiet operation and a choice of control functions to maximise savings on running costs and energy use.
A crucial consideration with any air-conditioner is matching system size to house size. Sharpe Energy Hub has experienced and fully-qualified consultants who can engineer the best system for your application.
The result is an investment in your property that will pay dividends for decades to come in comfort, energy efficiency and lower power bills.
